How often do you really take a look around you and let your eyes and mind explore all that captures your attention along your path...? I know I am guilty of running on auto-pilot many times, just as much as the next person. However, when I do actually decide to gear down and enjoy a walk in town, I have to say it is the most rewarding feeling. Such was the case a couple of days ago while I was in central Athens strolling down Mitropoleos street checki...Read Full Post »

2020. Another year, another decade... or better yet
A NEW YEAR AND AN EVEN BETTER DECADE!
YES, that's more like it.
Without getting into much personal detail, I have a feeling that a lot of us out there, myself included, have crossed over into th...Read Full Post »

It's never about the time that goes by, it's always about what you choose to do with that time. It's about how you perceive moments and whether or not you are oblivious to the seconds, minutes, hours and days that go by.
It has been a little over a year since I returned home to Greece after having spent a good ten years in Sweden... a year that has been intense and filled with enriching experiences, both on a pr...Read Full Post »

"Η Καλή μερα απο το πρωί φαίνεται!" as we say in Greece...! Which basically means you can tell a good day by how the morning starts....! Pretty true, isn't it...?!
My visit to the Heraklion Archaelogical Museum last year may have been a brief one, but it was most definitely an enriching and inspiring experience...Read Full Post »

It is said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step - it was Lao Tzu, for the record - it is that step I decided to take several months ago when I decided to leave Sweden after 10 years and return to Greece. It was by no means a decision I took light-heartedly. Very careful consideration was taken of actual circumstances and what would lie ahead of me should I decide to stay. Thoughts I had mulled over for the last couple of years, over and ove...Read Full Post »

Last summer I spent an amazing week exploring the island of Crete where every single day and every hour has been imprinted on my mind in the best way. The last couple of days were spent at Ierapetra, the southeastern side of the island; a beautiful location that deserves its own post. It goes without saying that what makes a place truly magical is its people, and Crete is definitely no exception. What made this trip even more magical was experiencing a visit on the little islan...Read Full Post »

I admit that when it comes to the islands of the Saronic Gulf, I have always had a weakness for two of them - Spetses and Hydra - but after last year's visit on the occasion of a press trip with the Estonian state TV channel and the travel documentary "Travel with me", I got to know the island of Poros a little bit better.
Having spent most of the day shooting at Delphi and Arachova, we left the port of Pireaus around ...Read Full Post »

Time and time again I get asked one question I never get tired of answering: "What should I not miss on my upcoming trip to Athens?"
Year after year, Athens has been transforming into one of the most desirable, not to mention remarkable, city break destinations. Being an Athenian myself, I could not be more proud! Be it award-winning titles of european or global recognition or words of praise and gratitude, Athens alwa...Read Full Post »

A visit to Crete www.incrediblecrete.gr would not be complete without experiencing a day at the Herakleion Archaeological Museum. Last summer I had the good luck to be staying at a beautiful hotel right next to the Museum, so immediately after breakfast, I made my way over. I knew I only had a couple of hours available till I'd leave for Ierapetra.
If I could honestly descr...Read Full Post »
